They've been around for a while.

The video clips appear to be a mishmash of Chicago (March 28, full gold suit) and Ottawa (April 3 AS), not Toronto. The Ottawa footage is contained in the CBC archives, the Chicago shots must be from a 1957 newsreel.

Thanks Doc. I knew about the Chicago footage, but I wasn't aware there also was footage from Ottowa.
